    This might raise a little smile. I know this is a topic that has been discussed on the forum before, but it’s worth a look.

    Noble Ox

    Didn’t stop the multi-AW winner of a few years ago Noble Locks from running.

    Or Mary Hinge.

    With the increasing French imports particularly in NH, I’d like to know how this affects French named horses running over here, or whether the French authorities are quite so assiduous.    

    I remember we had Encoulez I think it was a few years ago, and commentators must be thankful Big Tits never made it to the Gold Cup.

    …not to mention the Franco-Spanish ‘Juan Coeur’.

    lol…that’s a good one.<br>What’s the problem with Ophelia? I don’t get that one.

    My favourite at the moment is the useful novice chaser of Paul Nicholls’s called ‘New Little Bric’, once again ex French bred and legitimately named as the sire is Bricassar, but when said in a hurry sounds to me like ‘You Little Prick’.    Anyone else agree? or is it just my hormones.<br>

    There is a horse in france named Big Tits! Hasn’t ran in the UK AFAIK but ran once in France when the race was covered by RUK. The commentators just ignored it the whole race :cheesy:

    Cant think why?

    About 20 years ago, there was a horse in the US called Willy Wa nk. One day he fought out a stirring stretch duel with a horse called Scorched Panties.

    You couldn’t make it up.

    I heard Norfolk In Chance got rejected but I don’t know if that’s just a joke or if it actually happened.

    I seen a horse on Racing UK’s French Flat coverage a month back called Sick My Duck. Very amusing waiting for the commentator to make the blunder of his career.:biggrin:

    <br>There was the variant Norfolk Enchants as well, wasn’t there? Same thing, basically. Didn’t get passed, anyway, and neither did Peover Ewe nor Ouanquer.

    I’m not sure if someone from the French Jockey Club reads the forum, but it has been brought to my attention that sadly Sick My Duck has now been renamed. Very unusual, as she had already run 7 times.  

    She is now named, rather more elegantly but less amusingly, Que Storia.
